Japan was great! But enough with the pleasantries.
Well this probably won’t come as much of a surprise to anyone but I pretty much forgot about my new year resolutions the moment I finished writing them so I didn’t end up listening to that many new albums this year.
That said, of the few that I did end up checking out, only D’Angelo’s Black Messiah, Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp a Butterfly and FKA Twigs’ M3LL155X stood out.
We really live in the Golden Age of television, don’t we? So many shows brought their A-game this year that trying to keep up with everything was actually fun for me.
1) Fargo (season 2)
2) The Jinx: the Life and Deaths of Robert Durst
3) The Flash (season 2)
4) Mr. Robot
Special mentions: Master of None, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Narcos, Supergirl and Better Call Saul.
Kind of surprised at myself this year for not having a superhero movie or Pitch Perfect 2 in my top 5…
1) What We Do In The Shadows
2) Mad Max: Fury Road
3) Inside Out
Special mentions: The Martian, Spotlight, Hateful 8, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant-Man, Ex-Machina, Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Pitch Perfect 2.
Not see yet: Room and Carol.
This year really made up for 2014 with really strong releases across the board that just sucked my life away.
2) The Witcher 3
3) Fallout 4
4) Batman: Arkham Knight
5) Xenoblade Chronicles
Special mentions: League of Legends with their awesome updates, Metal Gear Solid V and Dying Light.
Not played yet: Rise of the Tomb Raider
And BOOM goes the dynamite! Another year in the can.
